Coding on the National Curriculum


From September 1st 2014, programming (or coding) has become part of the national curriculum. We see this as akin to suddenly introducing skills like cabinet making, plumbing and pottery to the curriculum but without employing anyone with these skills to deliver the subject. This means that we envisage major headaches for those charged with delivering this education.

At Technically High, we understand programming, coding, software engineering and software development at every level.

We can help you if you are:

  1. a teacher, struggling with learning the difference between all the aspects of programming then we can help.
  2. a parent trying to help your child with their coding homework but struggling to grasp the concepts yourself.

We believe that we can explain concepts within this subject, that may be difficult to understand. If in doubt, give us a call and we will try to help. If you want to set up a more formal or a more regular arrangement, then we can work that out too.

When you have found out the requirements for Coding at Key Stages 1 and 2, then come and talk to us about how we can help. We  are just as happy providing help with Coding at Key Stages 3 and 4.
